And here are the 3 LOs I have created so far...this was so fun I finished all these in one day!

In this 1st LO, I painted the chipboard frames with Distress Crackle Paint and then misted with the Maya Mist! I love the effect of the Maya Mist...it has a different kind of sparkly finish vs others. I also used my Slice machine to die-cut the swirls.
Title: Child's Play

In this 2nd LO, I used my scallop punch to cut out the flowers and then wrapped twine across and around it. I used my Slice machine again to cut out the flower patterns.
Title: Tiptoe

This 3rd LO is a quick one with some fussy-cutting and basically just putting the elements together until it looked right.
Title: Just Rosy
